The Fiona Archives

As some of you may know, Her Ladyship Baroness Fiona (insert much alphabet soup here), had an extensive book collection which was broken up upon her death. I have been cataloging such of it as was stored with Lady Briend and Lord Starkathr, and I believe I have finished with the books. The rest consists of old newsletters and such which I will get to in the near future. So here is a partial listing, which I have not alphabetized. If anyone needs to consult these books, I will arrange for a loan, but the collection has to stay intact, and a curse will be applied to anyone who does not return an item.
In service,
Baroness Ariadne Athingana of Ravenglass
